They are also required to take classes at the new base, most are just more of the same type they had in GL but many are base specific since they are told where they can go off base, which areas are "safe" to be in and these can change often.

John the bases were locked down my father in law works for a Navy base as a security officer.  He told me the exercise is now over so they should be back to normal operation

Paul............One thing to think about when sending food is where it can be stored. The last thing anyone wants is for all the creepy crawllies to find the food, I can promise you the instructors won't be happy if that happens. Once he settles in and classes up he will have access to the NEX and will be able add to his food supply. When my son was in A/C schools he ate breakfast on base and did supper off base, it cost him money but he was happier with the choices and almost everywhere in P'Cola offered discounts.

Thank you John for your help.  He is going to graduate in May.  The time will fly by.  I just want to let him know that We at home in Nebraska are praying and thinking about him.  Thankx again.  and GO HUSKERS!!

Paul, depends on how long he's been there. They go through stages and each time they progress, things get a little easier. Let him be your guide as to what to send. Remember, they don't have a lot of storage. Good luck to him.

Well, after graduating from Basic on 1-27-2012, my son tells me that he will be starting his HM classes on Wednesday. He is more than ready to get on with it!

Becky, My son has been at Hospital Corpsman A School for about 3 weeks now. He asked about having a car and was told that it was allowed, but that the parking near his dorm is very limited and was discouraged from having a car on base. He just takes a taxi when he wants to go somewhere on the weekend and splits the fair with a buddy or 2.
